Choosing the Right DWI Lawyer
Finding an attorney who is experienced in handling DWI cases in New Hampshire must be your top priority. NH DWI laws are constantly changing. The lawyer you choose must have the experience, resources, training and skills to examine every detail of your testing and arrest carefully, to ensure that your rights were not infringed upon, and to defend your charges vigorously. Choosing the right New Hampshire DWI lawyer is one of the most important decisions you can make at this time. DWI penalties in New Hampshire are serious and long-term. Among the penalties for driving under the influence are the loss of your driver’s license, significant fines, alcohol classes and programs, and potential incarceration. You may be faced with years of higher driver’s insurance premiums, or even an expensive ignition interlock device requirement. Because the penalties for DWI are so severe, it is essential to engage an experienced, aggressive NH DWI lawyer. Even if the prosecutor is negotiating with you on a plea, your case should be thoroughly evaluated by a skilled defense attorney.
A qualified New Hampshire DWI defense attorney should be certified in the administration of standardized field sobriety tests. Like the police officer who stops you on the side of the road and administers Standardized Field Sobriety Tests, a skilled NH DWI lawyer must also be certified in administering those same tests. The DWI lawyers at Tenn And Tenn, P.A. are certified by the United States Department of Transportation to administer Standardized Field Sobriety Tests. That means they have the expertise to evaluate every step of how the police administered your field sobriety tests and in many cases there may be external influences that can raise doubts about the officer’s subjective conclusions drawn from those tests.
In many DWI cases, an individual is asked to submit to a breath test for blood alcohol content analysis. In New Hampshire, police departments utilize the Intoxilyzer 5000EN. A qualified NH DWI defense attorney must also be certified as an evidentiary breath alcohol technician familiar with the workings of the Intoxilyzer 5000EN. The DWI defense lawyers at Tenn And Tenn, P.A. maintain such certifications and are intimately familiar with the workings and limitations of the Intoxilyzer 5000EN. If improper protocols were followed in the machine preparation, testing, or chain of custody of the samples these skilled attorneys will know where to look and how to use that information in your defense.
Prosecutorial procedures, field procedures, equipment testing procedures and many other legal and technical details are crucial aspects of your defense that require experienced counsel on your side to provide you with the strongest possible defense.
